Matrix by Hunter Seamons using Final Cut Pro (SHN & FLAC>AIFF>Final Cut>WAV>SHN)
April 3, 2008

Thank you to mayormarionbarry and Charlie Miller for their beautiful work and seeds at etree.

Notes:

1) While there are minor gaps in all sources at various places, there is a three-minute gap in the AUD patch (Sennheiser 421) during Drums, so only the SBD plays for part of Drums.

2) The speeds of all sources were relatively close (within 1%), so there were no MAJOR speed changes.

3) I was extremely impressed with the results of merging these sources. (I have abandoned several other matrix projects simply because I do not like how the sources sound together.) While the Set I SBD is significantly better than the Set II SBD, which sounds "flat," the AUD source really rounded out the sound in Set II. I would say this is my best sounding matrix yet in terms of fullness of sound and syncing techniques - and an amazing show! Set II has some awesome moments as well - I like Space a lot.

4) Enjoy!

Subject: Which is the updated souce?
Since this source is the closest to the top of the search results, I will assume that it is the updated source Hunter is talking about in the comments section. If there is a better one, my ears can't tell. It sounds freaking amazing, as Hunter's matrix recordings tend to do (see 1974-06-22 and 06-23). I love how Hunter takes a flat SBD and a crisp AUD and combines them to achieve sonic perfection. Keep up the good work.

Subject: Fixed version available: shnid=92424
GO FOR SHNID=92424. It's the real deal.
Reviewer: wolfmanjack - - June 2, 2008
Subject: So which one is the Fixed Version?
This one or the other one - kinda hard to tell.

Anyway I always loved this show. The 3 Jerry heavies in the first set Sugaree, Birdsong and Deal are outstanding. Fantastic Wheel intro out of space, the audience in the upper mezzanine all joined hands for the wheel and danced all the way around the perimeter of venue inspired by the song - great moment in audience improvisation with the band.
